Preparation time: 15 minutes Cooking time: 10 minutes Serves: 10
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
Heat the 3 tablespoons of oil in a large Dutch oven and add the garlic and onions. Cook, 3 to 4 minutes until fragrant. Reduce the heat to low and add the rice. Stir constantly to make sure the rice doesn't burn. Cook over low heat, about 3 minutes.
Next, add the whole tomatoes, diced tomatoes, cumin, salt, pepper, cayenne and turmeric. Stir to combine and let cook, about 2 minutes. Finally, add the chicken broth and stir the mixture together. Bring the mixture to a boil, and then reduce heat to low. Cover, and simmer until the rice is not quite done, 10 to 15 minutes.
Top with the cheese, and then bake with the lid off until the cheese is melted and the rice fully cooked, about 15 minutes. Serve with chopped cilantro.
